“Artists like Robert Smithson, Donald Judd and Peter Hutchinson borrowed liberally from science fiction film and literature in their work. This collage treats the marvellous, seemingly indestructible, objects of mid-century science fiction cinema as artworks in their own right.”
Supported by UQ Art Museum and Monash University Museum of Art.
“His superbly executed montage rearranges shots from eleven films into a new narrative, one that recasts the alien artefacts as objects of beauty more than of danger. The resulting mash-up plays elegantly effortless and that is perhaps the greatest compliment one can make it because the match on action cutting and perfectly flowing dialogue are obviously the result of hard work and detailed viewings.” – David Verdeure, filmscalpel
